Day one of the Tarkine Bio-Blitz and what an amazing experience. Our survey group travelled to the wild Frankland River with Todd Walsh, in the quest to capture a Giant Freshwater Crayfish. It wasn't long before we were presented with a magnificent 'blue' lobster. Who would have thought!

I have lived in Tassie most of my life and have never heard of or seen a 'blue' lobster. It turns out they are only found in this particular river in the Tarkine. We are looking forward to more new discoveries tomorrow!
